Welcoming back an old friend 3/11/08

Bertolini’s story began here at Overbury Stud and we’re delighted that he has returned for the 2009 breeding season.

His first foals, conceived here in Gloucestershire, led to him becoming Europe’s leading first-season sire of 2005. The star of his first crop was G1 Cheveley Park Stakes heroine Donna Blini. But she was merely one of a whole host of juvenile winners he sired that year, and it was a similar story in both 2006 and 2007. In fact, his total of individual two-year-old winners from his first three crops was 77. Only one stallion anywhere else in the world has managed to beat this huge tally from three crops of racing age. Last year, was his third year with two-year-olds running and he celebrated it by becoming the leading sire of juveniles in Britain and Ireland by number of winners. He was also the top all-weather sire in 2007. His two-year-olds this year include the highly-rated Uvinza and King’s Troop. He is not, however, just a source of precocious talent. Among his older horses are the talented pair Moorhouse Lad and Prime Defender. Bertolini is also the sire of Medic Power, a record-breaking sprinter in Hong Kong, and Juice and All In Brawl have both won Stakes races for him in New Zealand this year. Right from the start, Bertolini’s stock in trade has been to throw winners and there are some really exciting prospects to look forward to. In 2006, on the back of his tremendous first-crop results, he was sent a really good book of mares, including the dams of Cockney Rebel, Le Vie Dei Colorei and Fast Company. In total, 28 black type mares visited him that year and the offspring of these mares will be two-year-olds in 2009. Bertolini is an exciting addition to our line-up here at Overbury and, at £4,000 (Oct 1 SLF), he’s great value, too. We look forward to re-introducing you to him over the next few months.
